Pink rose buds and petals are often used for their aromatic properties, which add a wonderful scent to sachets, potpourri and herbal body care blends.   The petals of the dark red Rose, R. gallica, known as the Provins Rose, are employed medicinally for the preparation of an infusion and a confection.   In this country it is specially grown for medicinal purposes in Oxfordshire and Derbyshire. The petals of this rose are of a deep, purplish-red, velvety in texture, paler towards the base.   They have the delicate fragrance of the Damask Rose and a slightly astringent taste.

 

The British Pharmacopoeia directs that Red Rose petals are to be obtained only from R. gallica, of which, however, there are many variations,  in fact there are practically no pure R. gallica now to be had, only hybrids, so that the exact requirements of the British Pharmacopoeia are difficult to follow.   Those used in medicine and generally appearing in commerce are actually any scented roses of a deep red colour, or when dried of a deep rose tint.

 

The main point is that the petals suitable for medicinal purposes must yield a deep rose-coloured and somewhat astringent and fragrant infusion when boiling water is poured upon  them.
